Having twice started from 16th position, Théophile unfortunately failed to score any points for the first time this season. Nevertheless, he came close to the top 10, demonstrating his potential on one of the most demanding circuits on the calendar.

Théophile Naël: “A difficult but instructive weekend”.

“The whole weekend was difficult because we had to constantly adapt to changing conditions and race behind the right set-up. Together with the team, we managed to optimize a number of factors, but the ones we were lacking in severely handicapped us in qualifying. And with grid position playing such a major role, it was impossible to aim for great results in the race. We did have a good balance, especially on Sunday, but it’s complicated to overtake at Zandvoort.”
